TESU | BSBA CIS vs BS IT
#1
I've 16 years experience in Computer Information Technology industry as QA manager, Project Manager & ERP consultant. 

I'm in dilemma to choose between BSBA CIS VS BS IT (TESU or WGU). Is it possible to complete BS IT through alternate sources ?

Please guide me.

You can probably find alt. credits to do a large chunk of the BSIT at WGU. The max you can transfer into WGU is 90 credits, so you would just identify the hardest courses to find via alt education and include those with the courses that cannot be transferred in. Those become the 30 credits you have to take from WGU and then you can transfer in everything else. That approach should also end up cheaper and faster than the BSBA CIS via TESU as well. Just make sure not to enroll in any courses at WGU before you're done transferring in all your alt. education courses since once you begin the program you cannot transfer in anything else.
In Progress: MBA in IT Management, Western Governors University (12/35cu)
Up Next: Perhaps an MSCS or a DBA/DM/Ph.D.

Complete:
BSBA in Computer Information Systems, 2019, Thomas Edison State University
ASNSM in Computer Science, 2019, Thomas Edison State University

B&M CC: 8.68cr, TESU: 3cr, CLEP/DSST: 15cr, Study.com: 57cr, Straighterline: 19cr, ALEKS: 9cr, TEEX: 6cr, The Institutes: 2cr, Sophia: 2cr
(121.68 credits total. 95 credits earned in 10 months, with 45 of those earned in ~3 months)

Thanks a lot for the detailed information.
